357 mag vs 45 colt for black bears
Being able to shoot either accurately is more important. I personally go with the biggest handgun I can accurately shot and practice with. Mine is a 4 inch 500 Mag. But for the 357 Mag and 45 L/C, I would go with the 45 L/C and a head shot is the quickest way to dispatch a full on charge. Not an easy task when you adrenalin is rushing through your body.
If you're going to make a hole, make it a big one.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you,
Jesus Christ and the American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom
